Following the victory, promoter Eddie Hearn revealed that the highly anticipated rematch between Serrano and Katie Taylor will take place for the undisputed lightweight title on May 20 in Dublin, Ireland.

A venue for this blockbuster event has yet to be announced.
In their first meeting in front of a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden in April 2022, Taylor defeated Serrano via split decision in a “Fight of the Year” contender inside the squared circle. Since then, the 36-year-old has gone on to defeat Karen Elizabeth Carabajal via unanimous decision in October.
The victory by Serrano on Saturday was her second consecutive since Taylor’s defeat. “The Real Deal” earned a unanimous decision victory over Sarah Mahfoud this past September to pick up her 45th pro win.
